The fire doesn't appear to be suspicious, but an investigation is ongoing, according to police.

A family member of the woman who died said the fire may have started when a television in the basement exploded, but the FDNY hadn't determined the cause of the fire as of Saturday evening.

Officials didn't immediately release the name of the woman who died.
